If it seems like this blog space has been quiet for a while, you’re right. It may sound counter-intuitive, but the summer is actually a pretty quiet time for us. There are so many other things competing for our attention, that getting out on the trail can get challenging.
Having said that, we haven’t been completely idle.
We’ve been focusing our attention on short trips as close to home as possible. For us, that has meant the Durham Region section of the Trans-Canada Trail east of Toronto.
Trying to find direction signs continues to be a source of irritation. While wandering around through overgrown fields and wooded areas with multiple paths leading in different directions, it would be really nice to know which one we should be following.
Even worse is when there are signs and they contradict the map I’ve printed off the Trans-Canada Trail website. What to do? We make it up as best we can.
Speaking of signs, some of them demand your attention for an entirely different reason.
Bridges and overpasses continue to be a favourite of mine. In fact the hard part is selecting which ones I want to highlight on this blog.
This adventure is taking us down country roads and into little nooks and crannies we wouldn’t otherwise have a reason to explore. Some cause us to pause while others we just quietly acknowledge.
